Sometimes what happens after last call just might change your life. One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink with him. Who wouldn’t take it? As the trio swaps stories and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career and his future with his girlfriend Abby. the young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices… and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.
Featured performers include Santa Cruz area veteran actors W. Scott Whisler, Sarah Kauffman Michael, Tiffany Cesarin and Paul Hughes, with scenic design by Larry Cuprys. Mountain Community Theatre is currently celebrating its 40thyear of bringing quality entertainment to Santa Cruz County. Masks are required for audiences at all performances.
